Hello Modern Guys and Gals,
Have you heard about Skin Script’s Glycolic and Retinol Pads? Chances are, even if you haven’t used these pads, you’ve used something similar. We’re a little bit obsessed with these right now.
These handy-dandy little pads are great for all skin types. They’re quick, easy to use, and packed full of benefits for your skin.
They’re often recommended to fight hyperpigmentation (dark spots) and visible signs of aging, but it doesn’t stop there. These guys are like a Swiss Army Knife because there’s so much they can do! This week, we want to share our favorite tips for using Skin Script’s Glycolic and Retinol Pads.
1. Manage Keratosis Pilaris, a.k.a, Chicken Skin
Have you ever noticed small goosebump-like bumps on certain areas of your body, like your upper arms or the back of your legs? There's a name for them, Keratosis Pilaris, and they come from an overproduction of keratin protein. They’re very common and totally harmless, but if they bother you, Glycolic and Retinol Pads might be the answer. Their serum helps exfoliate and soothe irritated skin.
2. Treat Rough Heels
Here’s one I bet you wouldn’t have guessed, you can use these pads on your feet! These pads are miracle workers on dry, rough heels. If you ask us, this is a much better choice than one of those awful foot files. The pads are painless and comfortable to use. You can’t ask for an easier way to get smooth feet.
3. Don’t Forget the Back of Your Hands
Besides our faces, our hands are probably the parts of our bodies that are most frequently exposed to the sun. However, many people forget to care for their hands daily. This product is meant to reduce visible signs of aging, such as wrinkles and dark spots. It works as well on your hands as it does your face. Give your hands some love! Swipe the pad across the backs of your hands before you throw it out.
4. Knees, Elbows, and Underarms
Do you get dry, rough dark spots on their elbows, knees, or underarms? You’re not alone. These spots can be caused by a variety of things, but commonly, they’re the result of dry and dead skin. The pads help exfoliate the dry skin and kojic acid, one of the main ingredients in the pads, is great for lightening areas of too much pigmentation.
5. Fight Acne
This product helps break down oil, which can reduce acne. However, many clients have also seen increased improvement in hormonal acne. This is acne that occurs after your teenage years and is often triggered by stress or other hormones. The pads are also great for reducing the appearance of scars caused by acne.
As you can see, Glycolic and Retinol Pads are a beauty routine staple. Incase you get carried away (hey, we won’t judge), we recommend cutting the pads to maximize use. The pads are very saturated so for most small areas, like the face, half of the pad should be enough. You can also use the other half for other areas of the body, such as hands, elbows, and necks. Bonus: store the jar upside down for even more saturation.
These are some of our favorite tips, but we know there’s so much more these pads can do. What’s your favorite way to use Skin Script’s Glycolic and Retinol Pads?
